Regarding Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s remarks on the UT race-based admissions system.
Justice Scalia, with respect to university admissions given to scholastically low-ranking black students over others, he is correct. This also applies to scholastically low-ranking white, brown, yellow and red students.
State-funded university education has been dumbed down to the lowest common denominator in order to get as many students as possible from the admissions office to graduation day diplomas.
Time was when universities were truly institutions of higher learning. Today, I work with university graduates, mechanical engineers, who don’t know the physics of air and water.
It seems to me (this is my opinion, in other words) state-funded universities bloat tuition to fund far-left educators for whom the mission is to indoctrinate students in all manner of illogical, immoral leftist values. Is this not evident to the most casual observer?
Safe zones? Free-speech zones? Sexual identities? Really?
For the first six decades of my life and for the first two hundred years of our nation’s life, we followed God’s “sexual identities”. For a refresher, let’s read Genesis 5:2 which says, “He created them male and female and blessed them. And he named them “Mankind” when they were created.”
Is homosexuality a new “gender identity”? No, it first appears in recorded history in Genesis 9:20. Roughly 3,000 years later on, the Apostle Paul reaffirmed the wickedness of homosexuality in Romans chapter 1, verses 26 and 27.
“…their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.”
Prohibitions against “sexual relations with an animal” (Exodus 22:19) tell us bestiality was always a deviant sexual behavior.
Sin has been with mankind from the time of Adam and Eve and sin will be our nature until the day of Jesus Christ.
Public University students are now taught that sexual deviancy is the new “normal”. Corrupt, ungodly, atheistic college professors now tell public university students there are 22 “sexual identities”.
I told you the bad news. Here’s the good news: God sent his only natural-born son, wrapped in burial cloth, birthed in a barn, lived a sinless life, sacrificed his own life so you can have eternal life and so you can have the grace of God in your present life.
I take opportunity to encourage parents to seek Christian universities for their soon-to-be high school graduate children. One great resource is CollegePlus.org.
Meanwhile, I applaud Justice Scalia’s frankness and encourage public dialog around the Biblical models of righteous male and female roles.
